Most Boring Post Ever.

So let me start out by apologizing for the most boring post ever, but I am SO happy with my new bobbin holder. Tada!

I didn't get as much sewing done over the weekend as I would have liked, but I am almost done with Super Secret Project #1. Unfortunately because it is a Super Secret Project, I can't show you photos, but let me tell you, it's exciting.

I've received 3 books from Amazon in the past couple of days. Angry Chicken's Bend the Rules Sewing, The Crafter's Companion (finally), and Knit 2 Together. The first two are written by fellow bloggers, and raving reviews are all over the blogosphere. They're as beautiful as everyone says.

However the last book, Knit 2 Together, was an iffy one for me. This is the one with Tracy Ullman and Mel Clark in a two person sweater on the front. Anyway, the reason why I got this book was because it was only $3.99 or something ridiculous like that on Amazon. Amazing. So I took the plunge and got it. Let me tell you, the patterns in here are gorgeous (minus the two person sweater). I will definitely be knitting some things from this book. But really, couldn't they have picked a better photo for the cover? Who wants to knit a two person sweater anyway?

Wow that bobbin holder is totally awesome. Where'd you get it?

I too have ordered Amy Karol's book and am waiting for it to come in with a bunch of other books.

Oh, and the Crafter's Companion--awesome.
